Whimsy Blog Hop! New Stamps! Candy!



If you have come from Rowena's Blog, you have come to the right place!  If you have landed here randomly, you might want to start the blog hop at the beginning here at Chris's Blog.
Whimsy has some new red rubber released and available for purchase today and this is one of the new stamps!  Introducing,"Moonlit Ride".  I think it is one of my personal favourites that I have drawn, although I usually say that with every new one I do, lol!  I wanted this carousel horse to have a dreamy, starry look to it,  so I coloured it with dramatic colours!  (colours listed below)
There's lots of other new rubber released today too - beautifully designed sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs Designs, and a couple more I have drawn, including a couple of cute little girls, so be sure to check them out.  And, Ann is having a sale this month on her digital sets - 
25% off!  (on her digital sets only, not red rubber) from July 17 thru July 31!!

You have until Monday July 26 to hop around to all the DT members blogs.  At that time, a winner will be drawn for the blog candy pictured here!  It is all six new release stamp sets!!



As you can see in the piccy, Whimsy is releasing my little elephant image that I had previously only offered as a digital image through Squigglefly.  Now you can get her at Whimsy in rubber!  I have dubbed her, "Jelly Bean".  
Next stop on the hop is Denise!  She is the proud owner of Whimsy Stamps, and such a delight to work with.  Hi Denise, waving!!

Card details:
I made the dark blue background paper by doing a watercolour technique using salt.  There's a great tutorial for this technique on Splitcoast Stampers right HERE.  The only difference is I used water colour paint - but you can use ink like it states in the tutorial, and it will work just as well.

And here is the colour list for the image:

The blues:
B32, 34, 37, 39
The moon and stars:
Y00, 15, 18, 19 (tiny bit of E99 on moon and on bridle star only)
The reds:
R12, 14, 17, 29
The greens:
G21, 24, 28

I am entering this card into the following challenge:
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays: Animals
Colourless blender used throughout the horse's body to soften the area around the stars and moon. Here is your close-up:

Thanks for visiting my blog today, Precious Peeps!   God loves you and wants you to know His love, His joy and His peace!  May He bless you today with a deeper knowledge of His amazing love for you!
